“Excellent city centre hotel”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

Stayed for three nights and found staff friendly and very very helpful. Room was spacious, though a bit noisy as it faced the street. Other rooms would be quieter. Anything we needed we only had to ask for. Reception very helpful and friendly. Bar also a friendly place (although a bit dark and gloomy).

Most pathetic staff i have ever come across.a bunch of cheats who just want to swindle money.room was 1500 a night.dirty and unkempt. Absolutely not worth 1500.had to check in coz it was around 11pm.paid an advance for 2 nights but later decided to check out after 1 night and change hotel.However the guy at the reception did not refund the remaining day's advance..we had to argue but all in vain..cheats to the core is what i'd call these people who run the hotel..

Stayed August 2013, travelled with family

We planned for an adhoc family trip to Puducherry from Chennai. We started in the morning and reached there around 1 on Saturday. Being a weekend, we found it difficult to find decent accomodation at budget prices and as we were planning to stay just for a night we approached this hotel. They charged Rs. 2000 for a night but the accomodation and service were absolutely not worth the money. They offered a choice between a room on the ground floor and a room on the top floor, the difference in cost being Rs. 500. But the room upstairs was smelly, musty and ill maintained. Although the room on the ground floor was cleaner, the bar was just below and the restaurant next to it. At around 3 AM our sleep was disturbed due to continuous yelling in the corridor which continued till almost 5 AM. On our way out for shopping, we forgot our key in the room. The hotel staff could not find the spare key and actually made one of their employees open the window from the back side and jump through it to unlock the room. This clearly shows that it is an absolutely insecure place to stay. We ordered food from the restaurant which was bad and expensive. Overall a very pathetic experience. Would not recommend this place to anyone and personally will not visit again.

Very Non veg stuff available, Good for stay with friends may not be suitable for a family I feel not sure but. Very close to the market place hence quick shopping is possible. Ice creams are fantastic. Opposite to an Ice cream parlour which I have not heard off anywhere it meet the Buskin robbins bill but cheaper. Getting a seat on saturday and sunday is lucky

The receptionist was very helpful and offered to reduce the room rate from 1500 to 1000 Rs; sounded great!

I said I'd be back after breakfast with my bags, and returned 40 minutes later. I was taken to a room in the adjacent building, to the 3rd floor. The lift wasn't working, but that was okay. When I entered the room it was obvious that it hadn't been cleaned properly in at least a month. When I pointed out the dirty floor, the guy did 5 seconds of mopping around near the window. Totally inadequate!
I did not check in
